The Colorado River is one of the most scenic stretches in the entire USA, and sometimes you just need to explore it from a WHOLE new angle!
Welcome to Turtle Tubing! This one of a kind activity lets you experience nature's own water park. That's right! No twists and turns down crazy slides, or huge wave pools filled with hundreds of kids.
Here, on the Colorado River, you can just let the river decide your pace, and take in the incredible nature all around you! If you're lucky, you might just spot some wildlife, so keep an eye out too!
Turtle Tubing really can be a family affair, as it's suited for kids as young as 2 years old. It's a must-do activity for any family member who loves the great outdoors! It's where kids can see the scenery from a whole new view point, and you can explore the surroundings as you pass.
Occasionally, you might spot a sandy beach that you want to stop off at, where you can take a break and enjoy a snack. If you look up, you might just spot a grand bald eagle, soaring above you!
There are a few ways you can enjoy Turtle Tubing too, so pick what's best for you! You can just rent the tube, and explore the river at your own pace. Or you can meet at Dotsero Landing, which is the best option for families, and then they arrange a pick up for you
Whatever the option, you will see a whole new side of Colorado, and just give the kids an adventure they won't be forgetting in a long time!
